Dorothy E. Bielfeldt

January 15, 1922 — July 14, 2017

Dorothy Evelyn Bielfeldt was born January 15, 1922, in rural Crawford County, the daughter of Herbert and Alma Clausen. She passed away Friday, July 14, 2017, at Eventide Lutheran Home in Denison, Iowa, at the age of ninety-five.
Dorothy was baptized in Christ February 19, 1922, and confirmed May 31, 1936, at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Soldier Township, Charter Oak, Iowa. She received her education in the rural schools near her home and helped her family on the farm until her marriage January 30, 1949, to John Bielfeldt, Jr. at Zion Lutheran Church in Denison by Rev. C.W. Schmidt. They settled on a farm near Charter Oak and were blessed with the birth of two children, Lynn and James. In 1956, they moved to a farm near Arion where Dorothy was a stay-at-home mom, taking care of her family and helping with the duties of being a farmer’s wife. After John’s death in 1994, Dorothy purchased a home and moved to Denison in 1995. She subsequently moved into Silveridge in 2014.
Dorothy was very particular as a seamstress and enjoyed gardening and cooking, especially making a good steak, gravy and syrup. She drove a car until she was ninety-one years old. Her favorite TV programs included game shows such as Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and Family Feud, as well as the classic I Love Lucy shows and RFD TV. Watching Iowa and Iowa State basketball games and major league baseball games were also a favorite pastime for her.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, John; and one brother, Donald. Survivors include: one daughter, Lynn and her husband, Jerry; one son, James and his wife, Janet; seven grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; one sister, Delores and her husband, Willis; one brother-in-law, Glen; other relatives and friends.
